Danny Verete’s images instantly transport you into the time and place of a forgotten world… once transplendent, now held together by memories and threads…. symbolized by the haphazardly woven-together patchwork seats of the iconic Indian Rickshaw.

Their former beauty and elegance is underscored by their present fragility and distress. Verete’s eye sensitively reveals the patchworks’ richness and beauty as colorful abstractions, like visual kaleidoscopes.

Undeniable is the artist’s love for life, and for all human beings engaged in their various incarnations of struggle and acceptance. His images are imbued with a vitality and vibrancy that transcends their opulence of color. They impart a sensory infusion of the smells and sounds India.

Verete is a consummate story-teller and his images speak volumes. His still-compositions cast an immediate spell on us, seducing us into time-travel to an imaginary world.

Similarly, Verete’s rickshaws have told thousands of stories – stories of their adventures with passengers, as well as their caretakers, their partners, their lovers, their family.

Each patch is a story, a lifeline, adding up to a visual rhythm akin to jazz improvisation – where passion and urgency meet endurance and patience, desperation and neglect embrace loyalty and faith. Scars become beauty-marks; Vulnerability becomes strength.

Life will continue to write new chapters of the here and now, covering the memories of the Rickshaw’s glory days. Thankfully, their “LOST KINGDOM” is not entirely lost to us, as we may live in it – through Verete’s eyes.
